Forums - Gaming Discussion - MetaScores per year (2000 - 2019)

I made a spreadsheet of the annual number of games per platform, which had a MetaScore of at least 90% (85%, 80%, 75%).

Then I combined the console families (f.e. PS1+PS2+PS3+PS4 to "PS Home Consoles") for the bar diagrams. I hope you like them:

Really nice work. That must have taken a while to do.



Hm, so a unified OS will definitely help Nintendo a lot in terms of quality releases next generation. The Nintendo Handheld + Nintendo Home Console almost rivals the other platforms, and that is assuming no third party multiplat support.

Which there probably won't be. But yeah the data does show that unifying their two platforms will really help in their software output.



really well done, great thread!, there is a lot of great games out there i wish i had enough time to play them all.

Really impressive work here. Thanks for sharing. :)

So, the data seems to show that the start of each generation produces the best-reviewed games, then? 2001 to 2003 (6th generation) has over 30 titles with 90+ metacritic score. 2007 to 2009 (7th generation) > 25 titles with 90+ metacritic. Not true for the 8th gen, though. Maybe it will take longer this generation to get the really good games everyone is waiting for?



It'll be awhile before I figure out how to do one of these. :P 

Nicee list! Third Party and Indie games really help the PS/Xbox platform which is why Nintendo needs them too so hopefully, the next Nintendo console will be close to the ps5/x2's performance even if its a bit lower than both
